Chrysler 300 Celebrates 60 Years By Saluting Their Drivers

As Chrysler’s 300 turns 60 this year, they took to advertising to show their appreciation for their loyal customers.  In a sixty second television commercial that aired from April thru June, Game of Throne’s favorite, Peter Dinklage narrates a dramatic piece honoring the American entrepreneur.  

Also featured are small business owners, self-employed contractors, artists and designers who exemplify the hard work and determination it takes to rise to the top. Being as the campaign ran from April through June, you may have missed it, but please do watch it.  If you’ve any appreciation for Peter Dinklage,  the stunning Chrysler 300 or sixty seconds of drama, you will undoubtedly be glad you watched it.

The American Entrepreneur

Just as Miami Chrysler is inherently American, hailing from Detroit, so are all its falls and rises to glory.  It has persevered through the economic downfall, it has triumphed to be an American automotive leader, still.  

Celebrating the entrepreneurial spirit is part of the American experience.  Rising and falling and getting back up again every time until greatness and success is achieved are part of what makes Americans so great.  

Who better to understand such greatness, such trials and fortune than Chrysler’s 300?  Its rise and fall has been well documented, but still you carry on.  You don’t give up till you produce the vehicle that it is today.  Such a vehicle that has been envisioned, sculpted, manufactured and produced in America, in Detroit.  

“The Kings and Queens of America”

Without noticing right away, you may think these are actors in the commercial.  They are not.  They were approached about being a part of Chrysler’s ad campaign for a very specific reason.  They are the entrepreneurs, the rule breakers and the rule makers; like Dinklage says, “the kings and queens of America”.  

Featured in the campaign are Becky Hammon who is the first full-time female NBA assistant coach. Alexis Ohanian, Reddit cofounder.  Shawn Williams, martial arts instructor and studio owner.  Caroline Styne, restaurant owner.  Nolen Niu, furniture designer of Nolen Niu Inc.  Mercedes Yvette jewelry designer at the GIlded Fox, Lynn Le, founder of sportswear company Society Nine, Avi Brosh and Andrew Sasson both who are hoteliers and Smith Henderson who is a novelist.  

These are the examples of the kings and queens of America.  They are the bold, physically strong and aggressive people who won’t back down and keep going till they get to the top.  They are the embodiment of the Chrysler 300. At 60 years, this is quite impressive, but it’s certainly not about to let something as ever changing as age hold it back.
